'NodeList' object has no attribute 'firstChild'

0 votes

When I execute the following code I get an error as 'NodeList' object has no attribute 'firstChild'. 

from xml.dom import minidom
dat = minidom.parse('sample.xml')
tagname= dat.getElementsByTagName('item')
print(tagname.firstChild.data)

Here is my XML file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<metadata>
<food>
    <item name="breakfast">Idly</item>
    <price>$2.5</price>
    <description>
   Two idly's with chutney
   </description>
    <calories>553</calories>
</food></metadata>

What should I do?

Use the following piece of code:

from xml.dom import minidom
dat = minidom.parse('sample.xml')
tagname= dat.getElementsByTagName('item')
print(tagname[0].firstChild.data)
OUTPUT: Idly
